Accepting Patients:

"Trauma, fractures, and broken bones happen to people from all walks of life--young, old, active, sedentary, at work or play. But such injuries do not necessarily lead to chronic pain, arthritis or disability. We focus on providing an early and active recovery to get each patient back to the best function possible."


Dr. Friess specializes in treating arm, leg and pelvic fractures. He has a special interest in treating fractures that have not healed correctly after treatment. He also does surgery for patients with bone infections and infected fractures, which can mean working with several specialists. He does research on the healing of broken bones and weight bearing after fractures. Dr. Friess enjoys developing relationships with his patients as they are healing and returning to regular activities. During his spare time, Dr. Friess enjoys spending time with family, reading and gardening. He enjoys bicycling to work, but does not find the time as often as he would like.
